12oz can, thanks to Ken for picking this up while in Florida. The ale is a hazy tangerine color topped with a creamy, off-white head, good retention & lacing on the glass. Fresh tropical aroma of mandarin, mango, pineapple with some biscuity grain. Juicy tropical flavors of mango, passionfruit, mandarin, and pineapple gush on the palate with biscuity and toasty grain. Nice moderate carbonation allows flavors to meld, finishes somewhat bitter but not overly. Truly a unique IPA. I haven't had anything like this one before. Definitely gives a Florida feel with all the unique tropical notes. A must try if you get the opportunity.

Appearance- Pours a dark orange with a half inch white head. Leaves moderate lacing down the glass.

Smell- Strong smell of fruits. Grapefruit, orange and mango.

Taste- Fruits again. Grapefruit, orange, mango and some lemon. A little malt backbone and a slight citrus bitterness. Extremely drinkable.

Mouthfeel- Moderate carbonation, body was a little on the light side.

Overall- Very good beer, fruity take on the style. Not overly bitter. Only downside was the body but even that wasn't bad.
